Country artists across the board are known for putting on some larger-than-life concerts. It’s what keeps country music fans coming out in drones, tailgating, singing along and shelling out top dollar for the biggest concerts of the year, tour after tour. But which country artist or group puts on the best live show?

Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw are currently on tour together, but individually, they’re known to pack a punch, with big lighting effects and an even bigger sound every time they hit the road. Taylor Swift continually has top-selling tours with elaborate sets, and it’s not just kids in the audience singing along to hits like ‘Mean’ and ‘Love Story.’ Zac Brown Band have a reputation for being one of the better concerts out there, and Toby Keith‘s fans are among the most dedicated in the business — they never miss a show. Miranda Lambert is country music’s spitfire, and no one leaves disappointed after she hits the stage with that pink guitar. Then there’s George Strait, who is known as the king of the genre… enough said, right?

For the sake of keeping this poll simple, we’ve limited the choices to a small handful artists — but that doesn’t mean these are the only fabulous live performers in country music.
